About us and Taman Ayu
Throughout the years we have been able to see quite a lot of the world during our holidays. In recent years we kept returning to Bali, because we feel so comfortable here. Senang, they say in Bahasia Indonesia!
The climate, the Balinese people, the culture, the religion and its many ceremonies, nature and ofcourse, the delicious food! The idea was born to buy a holidayhome on Bali.
During the summer of 2015 we stayed a few days in Villa Taman Ayu in Bondalem, Northern Bali. The pure atmosphere of the Balinese (Hindu) life in this village with a hint of tourism, greatly encouraged us.
And then we experienced Taman Ayu: the traditional built house, the rugged antique furniture, the beautiful tropical garden and flowers, the lovely pool .... it was almost too beautiful to be true!
The house was completely renovated a few years ago. The large old garden has been restored and a spacious swimming pool has been laid out. The location, in the village aswell as so close to the sea, and in combination with the traditional architecture and yet having all the comforts...we find it amazing!
Villa Taman Ayu has been rented out for a number of years as a private holiday villa, including the entire garden and swimming pool. Since the end of 2016 the bungalow in the garden was offered (seperately) as a guesthouse / B & B. And mid 2017 we built a second bungalow, in the same style as the others. This provides extraordinary opportunities for people from 1-9 persons, to enjoy and share in all the beauty of Taman Ayu, in this still pure part of Bali!
The friendly staff will be happy to welcome you to Taman Ayu in many ways:
Dewi and Lusi (managers and chef)
Ketut (housekeeper and cook)
Putu (night watchman)
We really enjoy our stay and like to invite you to stay at Villa and Guesthouse Taman Ayu * (* beautiful place) too.
Looking forward to welcome you!
